most stellar night-the

Awards. It was a stark
reminder that the Oscar

very lonely place for

Undoubtedly this year,
we will proudly celebrate
the Academy Award nomi-
nations received by
African American artists
like Terrence Howard for
"Best Actor" and Don
Cheadle, as one of the pro-
ducers of "Crash", a nomi-
nee for the year's "Best
Motion Picture." But,
Terrence Howard's nomi-

poignant because he is one
of only seventeen African
Americans ever nominated
for lead actor or lead
actress category in 79
years of Oscar.
But why should we be
Since its' inception, the
Academy Awards ceremo-
ny has been a reflection of
America's seemingly end-
less challenge and obsta-
cle-race and equity.
Throughout the 20th
century, the Academy of
Motion Pictures Arts and
Sciences has repeatedly
performances by African
American artists, especial-
ly in the lead actor and
In 2000, Ebony maga-
zine reported that in the
first 73 years that Oscar
was awarded, 300 whites
had been cited for the top
acting award compared to
only 13 Blacks. At that
time, only three actors-
Sidney Poitier, Denzel
Washington, and Morgan
Freeman-had been nomi-
nated twice for the award.
Only in the 21st century
did a major barrier shatter
as two African American
actors, Washington and
Halle Berry, captured
Oscar gold as recently as
Film critics also point
to stellar performances that
were never nominated
despite both their critical
and commercial success.
Examples include Samuel
Jackson for both Pulp
Fiction and A Time to Kill,
Wesley Snipes 'for New
Jack City, Debbi Morgan
for Eve's Bayou, Eddie
Murphy for The Nutty
Professor and the creative
talents of Spike Lee for
Malcolm X and Kasi
Lemmons for Eve 's Bayou.
Lee was finally nominated
in 1998 for his documen-
tary, Four Little Girls.
Despite the odds, some
African Americans in
Hollywood have still suc-
ceeded even when their
victories were mired by
The first Black per-
former to capture an Oscar
was Hattie McDaniel in
1939 for "Best Supporting
Actress" in Gone With The
Wind. At the time, the
NAACP rightly criticized
the film for whitewashing
slavery and racism. When
the film premiered in
Atlanta, not a single Black
cast member was invited to
the three days of festivi-
Later, at the Academy
Awards ceremony held in
the swank ballroom of the
Coconut Grove Hotel in
Los Angeles, McDaniel
and her escort were shown
to a special table for two in
the rear of the ballroom.
Fifteen years later,
Dorothy Dandridge broke
through as the first Black'
performer to be nominated
in the "Best Actress" cate-
gory for her extraordinary
work in Carmen Jones.
Poitier, almost a decade
later in 1963, would
become the first African
American male to win the
"Best Actor" nod for his
performance in Lilies of the
Over the next thirty
years, small progress was
made, as nominations were
given to the deserving tal-
ents of James Earl Jones
and Freeman for "Best
Actor" and Diana Ross,
Cicely Tyson and Diahann
Carroll for "Best Actress."
Some experts argue that
the American movie indus-
try rewards actors who
have starred in big budget
films with high audience
appeal. That argument falls
flat when you consider the
success of such films as
Independence Day, which
starred Will Smith, gross-
ing $306 million world-
wide, and Murphy's
Professor, which eclipsed
the $128 million mark.
The fact remains that
25% of the movie going
audience is African
American. Sadly, Oscar
night still does not reflect
the vast talent in Black
Hollywood, nor the diverse
audience that fuels this bil-
lion dollar industry.
While there has been
progress, it's been too
slow. There should be
much greater recognition
of African American artists
by the academy for their
work in front of and
behind the camera.
It's time for a change.

THE POWER OF WORDS
Death is difficult no matter what
the circumstances. An elderly woman
does not want to hear that it is natural
for the husband to go before the wife
and that she should have expected it.
She doesn't want to hear that he's in a
better place. The best place is with her.
"I'm so sorry for your loss," is the
generic line and is perfectly accept-
able. "I'm here for you. Any time,
night or day, call me," is comforting.
The person who is mourning needs to
remember that when people say insen-
sitive things, they need to be forgiven.
They are only trying to help.
Friends want to help but often are
frustrated because they just don't
know what to say, so they say whatev-
er comes to their mind that they think
might be a comforting thought. Allow
the mourner sufficient time to grieve.
Too often, -well-meaning friends wor-
ried about the bereaved person say
things such as, "You need to get over
it," or "It's time to get on with your
life." Rushing through grief can be
very harmful. Grieving is an individ-
ualized process, and it may take some
people a long time to complete that
process. The average grief time for a
spouse is 1 year for every 5 years of
marriage. As the widow or widower
goes through the grieving process he
or she needs to start developing a life
as an individual, and needs to start
thinking in terms of "me" instead of
"we." Be sure to continue to include
this now single person in your activi-
ties. Don't hesitate to send an invita-
tion because you are concerned he or
she may be uncomfortable, or that the
event may remind him or her of the

"There's Always Something
Happening On The First Coast"
Phenomenal Women's 20th Celebration
All roads led to the UNF University Center
Wednesday morning. It was the 20th Anniversary of
theWomen's History Month Breakfast. With Ms.
Charlene Shirk, Weekend Anchor First Coast News
as Mistress of Ceremonies, it was quite a celebration!
Returning again as the speaker for the occasion
was Ritz Theatre & LaVilla Museum Executive
Director, Mrs. Carol Alexander. Donning a gorgeous
black chapeau, Mrs. Alexander immediately captured
the attention of the audience with her dramatic oration
of poet Maya Angelou's Phenomenal Woman. The
audience was spellbound! And she didn't stop there.
She shared the transitions she had personally endured
since, she was the featured speaker the last time. And
she paid homage to her dear late friend 'The Beach
Lady' Ms. Marvyne Betsch showing the film, Beach
Joining Mrs. Alexander and Ms. Shirk on the phe-
nomenal program were: Mesdames Joann
Manning, Reverend Davette Turk, Teneese
Thomas, Tressa Kirilloff, Marsha Oliver, and
Vanessa Boyer. They were joined by Mayor John
Peyton and former Mayor Hans Tanzler.
The 2006 Women's History Month'Honorees were:
Ms. Susan Hamilton, chief diversity and EEOC
officer for CSX Transportation who has always been
'driven' to improve the communities in which she
lives. Her community involvements include: the first
chairwoman of the Toyota Gator Bowl Board of

Crist, Legislators Push
Public Safety Measures
TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Charlie Crist
joined legislative sponsors in calling for passage of Anti-
Murder legislation to protect innocent Floridians from
violent offenders who violate the terms of their proba-
Crist and the lawmakers also urged the passage of
other important public safety legislation, including a
measure to safeguard abuse victims residing at domestic
violence shelters and another making it illegal for citizens
to provide misleading inforiiation-to law enforcement
officers investigating certain crimes.
Crist and the legislators said the common-sense pro-
posals would make law-abiding Floridians safer, and
urged the Legislature to_ gLe the measures speedy
approval. Joining Crist were SenatorsPaula Dockery and
Mike Fasano, Representatives Joe Negron, Jennifer
Carroll and Michael Grant, Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Commissioner Guy Tunnell and State
Attorney Willie Meggs representing the Florida
Prosecuting Attorneys Association, as well as representa-
tives from the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida
Police Chiefs Association, the International Union of
Police Associations, the Police Benevolent Association,
the Fraternal Order of Police and the Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence.
"Our government was formed, first and foremost, to
ensure the safety of itscitizens, and public safety must be
our highest priority," said Crist. "We cannot accept any-
thing less than an unyielding stand against those who
would tear apart innocent lives, families and communities
by their criminal actions."
The Anti-Murder legislation, sponsored by Sen.
Dockery and Rep. Negron, would make certain that vio-
lent offenders who violate probation are returned to jail
until a judge finds that they do notpose a danger to the
community. The bill creates a list of crimes that qualify a
person as a Violent Felony Offender of Special Concern,
ensuring closer scrutiny under the new law. Crist praised
'last \ ear's Jessica Lunsford Act as an important first step
toward protecting Florida's children, but said the addi-
tional provisions of the Anti-Murder legislation would
make children even more safe from sex offenders .and
Another priority piece of legislation emerged from the
Investigation into Jessica Lunsford's disappearance,
\vhich tragically ended in the disco er\ of the young girl's
body not far from her home.
Extradited Israeli Drug Lord
To Be Arraigned In Ft. Lauderdale

for the Southern
Ze'ev Rosenstein (right) is escorted Florida, and Mark
by federal agents as he boards a plane R. Trouville,
bound for the United States. Special Agent in
charge, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Miami
Field Office, announced that defendant Ze'ev Rosenstein
made his initial appearance in federal court today after being
extradited from Israel on March 6, 2006. Rosenstein is
charged by Indictment with conspiracy to distribute Ecstasy
and conspiracy to import Ecstasy. If convicted on these
charges, he faces a term of imprisonment of 20 years as to
each count. At the initial appearance, the United States
requested that Rosenstein be held in pretrial detention. A
hearing on the government's motion and arraignment has
been set for March 28, 2006, in Ft. Lauderdale, before
Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow.
A significant part of the, case against Rosenstein is based
on the seizure of approximately 700,000 Ecstasy pills in July
2001. The Indictment also covers a two year period during
which Rosenstein headed a sophisticated drug trafficking
network whose operations, spanned four continents and
involved the shipment of well over one million Ecstasy pills
to the United States. The July 2001 seizure occurred after
one of Rosenstein's co-conspirators sold a sample of the
Ecstasy pills to a confidential source in New York.
The next day, investigators with the New York Police
Department executed a search warrant and arrested two
Israeli nationals who subsequently stated that prior to dis-
tributing any of the pills they would receive instructions
from other co-conspirators in Israel.
Law enforcement officials later determined that
Rosenstein was one of the individuals responsible for financ-
ing the shipment of the pills to the United States.
It was also determined that one of the main brokers con-
necting potential buyers with potential sellers was also pass-
ing information to Rosenstein through another co-conspira-
tor. In essence, all decisions about the sale of the pills were
run through Rosenstein, placing him at the center the con-
Mr. Acosta noted that this case would not have been pos-
sible without the extraordinary joint efforts of the United
States and Israeli authorities, including the Israel Ministry of
Justice, the Israel National Police ("INP"), and the INP
office at the Israeli Embassy in Washington. For nearly five
years, the prosecution of Rosenstein has involved the close
and full cooperation of the Tel-Aviv District Attorney's
Office and the Tel Aviv Central Unit of the INP.
In addition, Acosta commended the efforts of Michael F:
Walther, formerly Deputy Chief, of the Narcotic and
Dangerous Drug Section in Washington (NDDS), for his
leadership in coordinating the U.S. side ofthe case. In addi-
tion, Mr. Acosta expressed his gratitude to Roslynn R.
Mauskopf, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of
New York, for her Office's aid in the investigation, which
included detailing Jed Davis. an Assistant United States
Attorney in her Office, to assist NDDS and the Souther
District of Florida.
Mr. Acosta also commended the efforts of Trial Attorney
Blair Berman of the.Office of International Affairs; DEA
-Special Operations Division; .DEA Foreign Operations
LDivision; DEA-Nicosia; the Miami-Dade Police Department
Narcotics Squad; the Glades Counth Sheriff's Office: the
Hialeah Police Department, and the Ne\' York Police
Department Queens Narcotics Major Case Squad. The case
is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys
Benjamin Greenberg and Michael Sullivan. and DEA

Puckett's Death Brings Attention to Stroke Risk
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 6 /U.S. Newswire/
National Stroke Association sends its deepest condolences
to the family of Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame baseball .
player, Kirby Puckett. Puckett's untimely death at the age
of 44 is just a testament to the fact that stroke can happen
to anyone, anytime'and anywhere.
National Stroke Association wants all Americans to ,.
understand the risk factors, signs and symptoms of stroke.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in our country, but
research has shown us that 80 percent of strokes are prevent-
able. In addition, early recognition of stroke 'symptoms and
calling 9-1-1 when someone is suffering a stroke, can be the
difference between life and death. African Americans are at
a higher risk for stroke than any other race and that is why it
is important to recognize and understand how to control risk
factors. Controllable risk factors include:
SHigh Blood Pressure -- having high blood pressure
increases stroke risk 4 to 6 times. It is the single most impor-
tant controllable risk factor -- optimum blood pressure is
120/80 or lower High Cholesterol -- keeping both LDL and
HDL combined levels under 200."
Smoking -- smoking doubles the risk for stroke:
Weight & Exercise -- excess weight puts a strain on the
entire circulatory system and increases the risk for people, to -
have high blood pressure, his cholesterol and diabetes.
Diabetes -- increases stroke risk.
At trial Fibrillation -- when you have an irregular heart-
beat stroke risk is increased 4 to 6 times
Alcohol -- drinking more than two drinks per day may
increase your risk for stroke by half
TIA -- if you have had a transient ischemic attack or
mini-stroke your stroke risk increases significantly.
Experts Say Africa May Have More Droughts
LONDON.- Africa may be entering a period of "persist-
ent famine" with drought striking more often, and aid agen-
cies 'urgently need more money to combat the scourge,
according to U.N. officials.
"There is a change in the world's weather pattern that dis-
proportionately affects Africa," James Morris, director of the
World Food Program, told reporters in London. Although
disasters have struck from the Asian tsunami to the Pakistani
earthquake to flooding in Latin America, "the toughest
issues are in Africa, there's no qtiestion," Morris said.
Majority of Americans Say Religious
History Should Be Taught In Schools
FAIRFIELD, Conn., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Religious
history belongs in the public school classroom, say a major-
ity of Americans in a national poll conducted by the Sacred
Heart University Polling Institute. Additionally, textbooks
should include religious history and traditions -- presented
accurately -- according to a majority of those surveyed.
Respondents were asked to think about public school
textbooks and their presentation of religious history in the
United States. Researchers asked respondents if they agreed
or disagreed with the following statement: "Textbooks
should include our religious past and religious traditions in
order to understand the present." A large majority, 79.7%,
strongly (51.3%) or somewhat (28.4%) agreed.
Similarly, 79.1% suggest it was very or somewhat
important that religious history be taught in public schools
throughout the United States.
-- Among African-Americans, 89.0% suggest that teach-
ing religious history is very or somewhat important. Among
Hispanics, the figure is 77.8%.
According to.June-Ann Greeley, Ph.D., assistant profes-
sor of Religious Studies at Sacred Heart University, ."As
much as the art, literature, political structure, and language
identify essential truths about a people and a nation, so do
the religious beliefs and traditions, according to a majority of
Americans-and to ignore such traditions is unsound scholar-
ship. For better or worse, we reveal our essential humanness
in our religious beliefs."
Over one-third of all respondents; 36.8%, believe pub-
lic school textbooks frequently misrepresent their own reli-
gion when discussing its history. Another 26.6% suggest
such misrepresentation does not happen or seldom occurs.
Some, 36.6%, are unsure. --Among Catholics, 34.6%
believe textbooks misrepresent their religion while 35.8% of
Protestants believe the same.

When I think about
summer camp, my memo-

crafts, how to make dinner
over a campfire and lots of
great songs. You can still
experience places like

Summer school may
not be the way most stu-

their summer, but the pro-

over the summer are often
a lot more "fun" than the
classes offered during the
traditional school year.
They usually allow stu-
dents the chance to get out
of the classroom and apply
the skills they learn.

of the session was the free
time on the beach, she had
to admit that taking the

also help high school stu-

or a major. I recently
spoke to a high school sen-

summer at a university as
part of an engineering
enrichment program for
high school students.
She said that living in
the university's dorms,
walking around campus
and interacting with stu-

attend. She's been accept-

Innovative Educational Program Offered At Ribault High School
Jean Ribault Senior High School has embarked on a new
program to increase the academic rigor on the campus. The
Early College High School Program as its name suggests
affords students the opportunity to obtain their high school
diploma and college credit simultaneously.
Students can earn college credit as early as 9th and up to
60 hours (equivalent to an AA degree) by 12th grade. The
program was. designed to raise achievement levels among
students of color, students with low socioeconomics, and/or
students that are first generation college attendees.
The learning environment is to be purposeful, challeng-
ing and relevant to the world at large. Such preparation will
make the transition to full time college students in the 11th
and 12th grades, and ultimately the transfer to a university at
the end of the fdur year high school career, a smooth one.
The program's intended purpose is to prepare students aca-
demically during their high school tenure in order to increase
the likelihood of students completing their college educa-
The program of study was developed by the Duval
County School District in conjunction with Florida
Community College at Jacksonville, North Campus. -The
program meets requirements for both high school graduation
and an Associate of Arts degree for use in a parallel program
at the university level. All of the courses in the high school
portion are honors (advanced) level classes. The college
program portio;of the program was deve ped by identify-
ing courses that 1) meet dual enrollment courses for high
school graduation, 2) meet AA degree requirements, and 3)
are university parallel program prerequisite requirements. In
the first year of the program students start as full time high
school students. Over a two-year period students.progress to
all college courses. In the 11th grade students are enrolled in
about 9 hours per semester of college courses and at least 12
hours per semester in the 12th grade. The program also

the program. Summer bridge activities and/or course
work to keep students on track for graduation.
Instructional support activities for 9th and 10th
grade students when high school is in session and college is
not in session. *Organized academic support for students
beyond the regular school day.
Mentoring, monitoring and counseling for students
on the college campus until high school graduation. Focus
on students meeting requirements for Florida Bright Futures
Scholarships. Required capstone activities.
For students who earn a C or better in their college course
work all tuition and textbooks are provided at no cost to the/
students. Transportation during the 3rd and 4th years, activ-
ity fees and incidental expenses are the only financial
responsibilities of the students and parents.
The classes of the program are small learning communi-
ties. The enrollment goal is ultimately 400 to 500 4udents
within the high school. High academic and behavioral
expectations are imperative to student success and are non
negotiable at Ribault and on the college campus setting; con-
sequences for actions below the expectation are strictly
enforced. Except for a small number of required 9th grade
elective courses (Health, Personal Fitness, and Physical
Education), all high school courses are taken with Early
College Staff only. Students move exclusively between the
staff members. A variety of instructional delivery methods
are used, including lectures, note taking, and cooperative
learning. Students share common areas on the Ribault cam-
pus (i.e. restroom facilities, cafeteria, library, and computer
labs); They may also participate in sports and any extracur-
ricular activities that do not require class time during the
school day, such as high school ROTC, art or music.
For the student that wants to get a "jump start" on his/her
college career, the Early College High School at Ribault is
the avenue to achieve that. The Early College High School
Program not only prepares students for college, but provides
them with an opportunity to assimilate into a college setting
as early as 9th grade. The Early College High School as
Ribault is paving the road to early and future success.

Patricia (New York, NY) ';:
Dear Patricia :
You should talk to the parents and authorities first and fight these children second.
Give the parents an opportunity to intervene and help with the prevention. From that
point, if they don't respond, document your actions and step in as needed. As an adult,
you should make the attempt to talk to these girls and get to the root of the problem. If

My boyfriend has lost his mind. He made the decision that he wanted to date 3 women
and still have a relationship with me. He's a truck driver and is away all the time so it
would make sense because I don't have much time with him anyway. He told me things
wouldn't change and I should respect him for being honest. Is it wrong for me to give this
a try or should I leave him?
Anonymous (Charleston, SC)
You're silly if you stay. This relationship would include a total of 5 people, which
magnifies your chances of sexual diseases, HIV and more. If you're not enough woman,
for him then you need to send him packing. He's had several women from the time he
met you and decided to share before he gets caught. Leave him high and dry because you
deserve more than what this buster is giving you.

financial problems, trust. issues and differences for 3 years of our 5-year marriage. We.
married in a hurry because she got pregnant but I would've proposed regardless. I've tried
counseling, sacrificing, and everything. I'm stressed out and now taking medication.
What can we do before we hurt each other or before one of us has a nervous breakdown?
Preston (Milwaukee, WI)
You got married too fast for the wrong reasons and didn't have time to start things the
right way. Out of all.your complaints, you haven't mentioned prayer, faith or together-
ness. It takes two for a tangle and if your wife is part of the burden, you need to bring her
in for the solution. Make the ultimate sacrifice and try again with your wife fully involved
and you'll see you can work things out together in stead of killing yourself to do it alone.

Churches Step up AIDS Campaign this Weekend
By Hazel Trice Edney, NNPA Washington Correspondent
WASHINGTON (NNPA) Seventeen years ago, some pastors were actually
afraid to get into the same baptism pool with people who had AIDS. The deadly dis-
ease and its causal virus, HIV, were taboo conversations even in the pulpit.
Now, thousands of Black ministers are not only addressing AIDs in their sermons,
but for the 17th year an increasing number will actually participate in a seven-
day annual conference March 5-11 to pray for the healing of AIDS around the world
and to educate themselves on dealing with it in their communities.
"There is a lot of good news to report in terms of how far Black ministers have
come on the subject of HIV and AIDS. We have really some serious models of HIV
ministries in Black churches today," says Pemessa Seele, founder and chief execu-
tive officer of the Balm in Gilead, Inc., now 17 years old. "But, certainly there are
far too many Catholics who are still not addressing the issues. But we can certainly
point to some AIDS ministries with denominational leaders who are actively giving
their voice to HIV. There's movement. There's major movement among the Black
churches on AIDS and HIV."
That movement has been gradual over the past 25 years since the first cases of
AIDS were reported in the U. S. in 1981.
"I think the major drawback is that people can not move from their belief that
AIDS is a homosexual disease," says Seele. "And the issues around people's feelings
and beliefs regarding homosexuality has stopped them from getting educated."
Church leaders interested in getting involved can visit the event's Website at
Rev. W. Franklyn Richardson, senior pastor of the Grace Baptist Church in Mount
Vernon, N.Y. agrees that stigmas have stymied AIDS education.
"Suspicions, misinformation, interpretations of God's vengeance for sin corrupt-
ed the church's ability to have an appropriate response,".says Richardson. "But over
time, information has gotten out on HIV/AIDS, how it is passed on. Light has helped
disperse the darkness."
Richardson will be just one of the prominent voices at the conference this year.
When Seele held her first Balm in Gilead conference in New York in 1989, only
50 churches participated, This year, she is expecting between 15,000 and 20,000
Black church-based AIDS ministry teams.
Some of the most prominent voices from America's Black churches have commit-
ted to attend. They include: Bishop Gregory G.M. Ingram, president, Council of
Bishops, African Methodist Episcopal Church; Bishop George W.C. Walker, senior
bishop, African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church; Bishop Marshall Gilmore, senior
bishop, Christian Methodist Episcopal Church; Rev. Stephen John Thurston, presi-
dent; National Baptist Convention of America; Rev. Dr. Major Lewis Jenison. pres-
ident, Progressive National Baptist Convention; Rev. Dr. William J. Shaw, president,
National Baptist Convention, USA; Rev. Dr. Arlee Griffin, president, American
Baptist Churches, USA; and the Rev. Canon Nelson Pinder, president, Union of
"Education is the most important key in eliminating this dreaded disease," says
Walker, senior bishop, AME Zion Church, in a statement. "And the church is certain-
ly one major medium through which this can be accomplished over a period of time."
The focus of discussions about the cause of AIDS has changed over the years and
broadened outside of the homosexual community to involve the majority of church.
congregations, says Seele.
"Eighty percent of all women affected with HIV in this country today are Black
women. And they're getting it from heterosexual sex," she says. "Where Black
women are affected, children are affected, where the family is affected, the commu-
Whereas the taboos used to be about homosexuality, there are now reservations
about the cause of the HIV growth in Black women, says Seele.
"We are dealing with multiple sex partners with men who are married, men who
are in the church," she says. "We are talking about bi-sexual men, men who are mar-
ried, who are in the church, who are deacons, who are pastors. So, we're not just talk-
ing about, you know, the negative 'down low brother.' We're talking about the real-
ity of life. Just the gentlemen who are the leaders in our community."
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that AIDS is the fourth-
leading cause of death among women ages 25-44 in America; the leading cause of
death among African-American women ages 25 to 34; the fifth largest leading cause

>;: .. careful not to misinfluence the youth from his or her
career/purpose in life just because the child has made
,- ,a few mistakes. Through determination, persever-
ance, and the will to survive there is always success."
Doreszell Nash Mama D uses National Education Standards
Doreszel Nashinstead of the Florida Sunshine State Standards, which
all public schools in Florida use. Nash feels that the National Standards better prepare the
student to enter college, the goal for all of her students.
"Instruction that is guided by National Standards allows students the opportunity to learn
what their peers throughout the country learn; thus, empowering the students to compete in
this global society, on a collegial level," said Nash.
According to Nash, when the government's public schools haven't benefited your child
by providing him or her with a well-rounded education, full of experiences that will guide
him or her to a successful/purposeful life, then Homeschool is the key. "this is your right, as
a parent, to take control of your child's education; even if you have to teach him or her your-
self!," says Nash. ,
Families that need assistance with this delightful duty or who may simply want their child
to have a highly qualified educator as their child's teacher, there is tutoring available to assist
your family in this new school, better known as Homeschool.
Mama D offers homeschool services and tutoring services for students in grades K
through 9th that include, but are not limited to: 30-minute seminars on establishing your
child as a homeschool student,-small group and One-on-One instruction in the areas of
English (i.e., reading, writing, grammar, listening/viewing/speaking), math, science, social
studies, and black awareness (i.e., African traditions of love and acceptance and Black
Special packages are available for families that receive tutoring in more than one subject;
as well as, families that have multiple students.
Mama D plans to open a private school in the near future using African/African-
American Histor as a foundation for her curriculum.

Culpepper Seeks Release
From Minnesota Vikings
Quarterback Duante Culpepper has asked the Minnesota
Vikings if he could speak to interested teams on his own
behalf. He said Minnesota denied his request.
He said he appreciated that the team's new owner, Zygi
Wilf, was willing to pay him a $6 million bonus due later this
"However, because of the fundamental differences I have
with management regarding the approach to my personal
and professional life, I think it is the best business decision
for both parties to go our separate ways," Culpepper said.
He softened his message slightly by saying that if the
team didn't honor his request, "then I intend to fulfill my
contractual obligations to the Minnesota Vikings."
A Vikings spokesman said the team would not comment
on the e-mail. Culpepper's status with the team has been in
question ever since a boat party scandal on Lake Minnetonka
in September. He was charged with several misdemeanors
for lewd conduct; Culpepper has said he is innocent and will
fight the allegations in court.
Further complicating Culpepper's situation is his contin-
ued recovery from a knee injury. Culpepper missed most of

studios in El Segundo,
California. Needless to say
that when BET Sr. VP of
C o r p o r a t e
Michael Lewellen and his
capable staff get together
ih association with Bobbie
Marcus PR & Events-it
The food and drinks
were good and plentiful
and the live performance
of master keyboardist
George Duke (the music
director for the event), and
super bassist Stanley
Clarke and band was
extraordinary. They were
} joined by Jazz vocalist
R&B/pop diva Teena
Marie and smooth crooner
Kenny Latimore who was
supposed to sing with his
wife Chante Moore,.who
was absent due to illness.
All three vocalists brought
the house down with their

number. Watch for BET J
16 Blocks; Warner
Bros. Films; starring
Bruce Willis, Mos Defand
David Morse. Directed by
Richard Donner. First of
all, when :anything is
directed by Richard
Donner, you, can expect
high tension drama with
plenty of action. He direct-
ed the Lethal Weapon
series, Conspiracy Theory,
Maverick and Superman.
This movie is about
NYPD detective Jack
Mosley (Willis), who is
assigned. to transport jail
inmate Eddie Bunker
(Mos Def), from lock up
to the courthouse 16
blocks away. Eddie is
scheduled to testify before
a grand jury. He is a wit-
ness in a case that involves
some crooked cops who
don't want him to make it
to the hearing alive.
Willis is very believ-
able in lhis project. He's a
broken down, pot gut, one
bad leg, alcoholic who has
been up all night. He does-
n't do any super stunts or
the usual Hollywood "get
shot," a million times and
still fight off a dozen peo-
ple and live. Eddie (Mos
Def) is a bit irritating in
the beginning because he
is a non-stop chatter box
with no off button. As the
film gets into the meat of
the action Eddie does form
a-bond via a weird sort of
partnership with Jack as
he tries to keep him alive.
Detective Frank Nugent
(Morse), proves to be a
very worthy and formida-
ble adversary to Jack. He
is one of the crooked cops
that Eddie's testimony
will involve. The, pace of
the film is pure Donner.
with plenty of twists and
turns. As with the rest of
Donner's films, this one
will be a top grosser. It
